An Ardmore woman has been charged with assault for allegedly shooting her brother-in-law in the head with a pellet gun.
Tiffany Rachel Gibson, 35, of 26649 Sixth St., was arrested and charged Tuesday with second-degree domestic violence (assault) following an incident in the 26000 block of Overmyer Lane on Tuesday afternoon.
Limestone County deputies were dispatched to a domestic dispute and possible shooting at a mobile home about 4:54 p.m. on Overmyer Lane, located in northern Limestone County, east of Interstate 65.
“There were three brothers, including the victim, and two of the brothers were fighting,” Chief Investigator Capt. Stanley McNatt said Thursday. “The victim was trying to break up the fight, when Tiffany got a pellet rifle and told the victim to leave. He did not leave, and she shot him with the pellet rifle.”
The pellet penetrated the skin above the victim’s left eye, and he was treated at Athens-Limestone Hospital, McNatt said.
